Living 100% out of every minute. Squeezing everything possible out of the moment. I have a thought that without keeping myself in check I maybe living only about 30 or 40% out of every minute. Without having my head here and now. That I maybe draining the intensity of the minute by thinking of what […]



A year ago I read a book by Deepak Chopra on interconnectedness and oneness. His perspective is that nothing happens randomly in our world; there is no mere chance or luck involved in the unfolding of our lives.

The right choice

I have had an amazingly productive week, and I have no idea whether it’s because of my three day juice cleanse, my 3 weeks of vacation or that I am in a better work mode. It might have something to do with us finally coming to an end of unpacking after the move, and that […]

A whole year in beads

This morning I dropped my 365th bead into my blue bottle. Wow. Its been a year since we began this journey and it has impacted my life in more ways than I could ever imagine. What initially began as a sort of light reminder as to the value of each day has become a sort […]


365 days with the beads

Wow, we have done our first year of The Bead Movement. It’s been 365 beads moved from one jar to another. I’ve been moving beads in the state of fear, anxiety, sadness, happiness, love, and in pure bliss and gratefulness.
